Amoris Laetitia - The Joy of Love

Amoris Laetitia, 'The Joy of Love', is the 2016 post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation “on Love in the Family”. It brings together the results of the two Synods on the family convoked by Pope Francis in 2014 and 2015.

Background to the Apostolic Exhortation

Pope Francis has finalised the intense two-year process of the Synod on The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and contemporary World with the publication of the Apostolic Exhortation: Amoris Laetitia, “On Love in the Family”. The purpose and approach of the Synod was pastoral, recognizing that the Church can do more to help and support marriage and the family in their joys and sufferings. ………Read more


The Vatican has published Pope Francis’ eagerly-awaited Apostolic Exhortation on the family, drawing together almost three years of consultations with Catholics in countries around the world.

The lengthy document, entitled ‘Amoris Laetitia’, or The Joy of Love, affirms the Church’s teaching that stable families are the building blocks of a healthy society and a place where children learn to love, respect and interact with others.

Silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament

A silent hour of prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for our bishops, priests. It also gives each of us the opportunity to have some time alone with Jesus and He with us. Continues this Wednesday from 8pm to 9pm, at Llay.

Extraordinary Year of Mercy

Just 13 Weeks Remaining of this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy – and the opportunity to obtain the Jubilee Indulgence (i.e. The complete remission of all temporal punishment due to sin) for ourselves or to offer it for the deceased in Purgatory.  The Holy Father writes “I wish that the Jubilee Indulgence may reach each one as a genuine experience of God’s mercy, which comes to meet each person in the Face of the Father who welcomes and forgives, forgetting completely the sin committed”. Whilst each Jubilee Year features a very special plenary indulgence, this time around, Pope Francis is seeking to make the indulgence as widely available as possible.  In the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, a Holy Door has been opened in every cathedral around the world, as well as in particular shrines. We are blessed to live so close to our Cathedral in Wrexham  

This is a wonderful opportunity for each of us, let us not allow it to pass us by unnoticed.
